Fun, bright and colorful artwork for people with a unique sense of style!

Scientist by day, Artist by night, Human the whole time.

I'm a self taught painter inspired mostly by my travels and/or nature walks around my home. My medium is mainly acrylics, however, I has also experiment with mixed media.

Currently living in Halifax, Nova Scotia, I'm also a research scientist in the fields of microbiology and molecular biology. I'm love showing people that an interest in science and the arts does not have to be a contradiction.
